Lake Winfield Scott and Coopers Creek offer great wild trout fishing but you need a license. The Wal-Mart in Dahlonega sells fishing licenses, maps and all the tackle you need.

Black Mountain Trout Ponds, less than a mile from Kennedy Creek Resort, has a “no catch, no pay” policy. This is great for the kids with little patience for fishing and a license is not required. They will even clean the trout and package them for you to take back to your cabin and cook.
